You are infinite potential

“You’re alive…That means you have infinite potential. You can do anything, make anything, dream anything. If you change the world, the world will change. Potential. Once you’re dead, it’s gone. Over. You’ve made what you’ve made, dreamed your dream, written your name.”

– Neil Gaiman –

I saw a fantastic video today on You Tube and wanted to share it with you. It demonstrates that we are all limitless beings with limitless potential.

And the only difference between those who live their lives in a limitless way and those who don’t is belief that it is possible.

I spent a lot of my life believing the lies that I was told, being comfortably numb, comfortably uncomfortable. Never asking the difficult questions. Never wondering why I was here, what life was really about. Until a few years ago.

I started to challenge convention. I started to challenge the status quo. And as I did so, my heart and mind started to open up to new and infinite possibilities.

About a year and half ago I decided that I wasn’t happy in the corporate world. I wasn’t happy being told what to do, how to think, how to live my life. And I decided that I wanted out.

18 months later I am running my own company, living in a very beautiful part of the world, and am fully in control of my own destiny.

The only limits that we experience in life, are the ones that we impose on ourselves.

Anything is possible. We are infinite beings with infinite potential.

What would you like to change in your life, so you can live in a limitless way? How can you take back your power?

Sending you lots of love, hugs and light,

Live without limits

Limitless

“Limitations live only in our minds. But if we use our imaginations, our possibilities become limitless.”

– Jamie Paolinetti – 

I was having a look through You Tube for inspirational videos this morning, and stumbled across this awesome new music video for a favourite band of mine, Rudamental.

The You Tube description for the video for ‘Waiting All Night’ explains it as the inspirational true life-story of San Francisco born BMX champion and actor – Kurt Yaeger, who became an amputee after an accident in 2006. All the characters in the clip are pro bmx’ers and the real friends of Kurt.

If you’re looking for a bit of inspiration today, this is 5 mins 14 of just that, with a fantastic soundtrack to boot.

And if you like this post, you can read another similar post that I wrote on 9 May called Live beyond limits, which contains a similarly inspirational story.

Sending you lots of love, hugs and light,

“If your life was a book and you were the author, how would you want your story to go?”

– Amy Purdy –

I stumbled across the most beautiful TED talk this morning thanks to You Tube suggesting it to me after having watched Shaun Anchor’s talk on The Happiness Advantage for the umpteenth time (it’s SO awesome!).

Amy, a keen snowboarder and lover of life and travel, sadly lost both of her legs below the knee at the age of 19. However, her story is not that of sorrow or sadness, but one rather of a celebration of what happened and how it forced her to push through the boundaries and limitations in front of her. And most importantly, her choice of embracing the magic of her imagination to create the kind of life she wanted to live.

She didn’t allow herself to be held back by anything in her quest to get back on her board, and after years of rehabilitation, hard work, effort and sheer perseverance, she became the top ranked adaptive female snowboarder in the world. And rather than be held back by the seeming limits of having lost both of her legs, she used these as a jumping off point to transcend them.

She also now spends a great deal of time helping others, especially those with physical challenges get involved with adventure sports like snowboarding, skateboarding and wakeboarding. And she has set up a Not for Profit organisation called Adaptive Action Sports.

The beauty of this story is that Amy is has not only challenged herself to be able to continue to do what she truly loves, but she has made a wonderfully positive impact on the world at the same time.

So the question for you today is, what boarders do you need to push off of in order to ensure that the story of your life goes the positive way you wish it to go?
